Our vision is to create a City where people feel connected, supported and empowered.

Our mission is Bringing communities together by delivering services and activities for all.

Over the past 12 months the Coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on everyones mental health and wellbeing.

One of WCT’s social objectives is to offer professional support and activities to build good mental health and wellbeing.

 

 

All funds raised through the partnership between Worcestershire Ambassadors and Worcester City Runs will support the delivery of:

Mental health first aid courses will teach you to spot earlier signs and symptoms of common mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression and stress. Our courses are delivered in accordance with the Mental Health First Aid England guidelines by our specialist facilitators who have experience of training specifically in the workplace.

A cognitive therapy based peer support programme Moodmaster provides a range of simple tools and techniques to help people manage life’s emotional ups and downs more effectively, cope better with everyday stresses and worries and improve their overall quality of life.

Around 1 in 4 people each year will experience problems such as stress, anxiety and low mood. Each week the Moodmaster sessions focus on a different topic and provide simple coping skills that can be put into practice. Topics include sleep, worry, relaxation, dealing with stress, problem solving and friendships.
